What does the Qur'an say about life on other planets?



Q: I'm curious to know what does the Qur'an say about life on other planets (it can be water, plants, anything, etc.). In the news we heard about people exploring other planets and claim they found life there, or there was life there before.


A: The Qur'an is a book of hidaayat (guidance) towards Allah Ta'ala. The Qur'an is not a book of science or astrology. Looking for these things in the Qur'an is in actual fact degrading the position of the Qur'an. Imagine a cobbler trying to search for tips regarding cobbling and shoe making in the Qur'an! 

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

ذَٰلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لَا رَيْبَ فِيهِ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ ﴿البقرة: ٢﴾

شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي أُنزِلَ فِيهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَاتٍ مِّنَ الْهُدَىٰ وَالْفُرْقَانِ ﴿البقرة: ١٨٥﴾
